Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control issued a press release on Aug. 30, stating that they will be working closely with law enforcement throughout Labor Day weekend to boost public safety.

“We’ll have agents on duty this weekend who will try to prevent underage drinking and over service to intoxicated patrons. We are also asking alcoholic beverage licensees to be vigilant when checking identifications to reduce underage youth access to alcohol,” said ABC Director, Jacob Appelsmith.

ABC will also be working alongside California Highway Patrol throughout the weekend. Funding for law enforcement overtime is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety, with hopes to limit the number of people who may drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to the press release.

ABC encourages party-goers to have a plan in place prior to celebrations involving alcohol by designating a sober driver.
